The official website for New Danganronpa V3: Everyone’s New Semester of Killing has been updated with new screenshots as well as the Japanese box art. Check it out below!

In the latest Danganronpa game the settings and characters have been completely changed and will be set in Saishuu Academy (Gifted Inmates Academy). There will be new game elements such as the ability to lie during class trials and “Scrum Debates” which will divide the trial into two teams.

One of the themes of the game is “psycho cool” which is reflected in the visual style of the characters and school. Saishuu Academy has a unique atmosphere and the classrooms and corridors are for some reason overgrown with greenery.


There are five bear-type robots who call themselves the “Children of Monokuma”, they are in control of Saishuu Academy and the “killing game”. Each Child of Monokuma has its own unique personality. Monotarou tends to be the leader of the five Monokumas but is easily sidetracked and has a child-like clumsiness to his personality.


Finally check out the box art for the Japanese version of the game.


New Danganronpa V3 is due for release in Japan in January 2017. Keep checking back to The Vita Lounge for all the latest Danganronpa updates!
